Even as the congressional battle over the FY 2016 budget goes on, the 26 federal grant making agencies are cranking up the solicitation process for next year. This means that forecasts for competitions supporting programs for children, youth and human services will soon be posted — if they haven’t already.
In fact the Health & Human Service Department, which happens to be the largest grantmaking agency in the federal government, has released an array of budget forecasts for FY 2016…with deadlines falling as early as the beginning of next year. With HHS awarding nearly $402 billion in grants last year, including about $50 billion from the Admin. for Children and Families, can you afford to miss out on these important notices?The Grant Advisors have always been big fans of these grants forecasts and can interpret them to provide an early warning system on upcoming competitions. Because federal grants have such narrow application windows (usually just 30 days), you have little time to prepare. That’s why our readers tell us time and time again they rely on our team to give them a better idea of what is in the pipeline, new priorities, estimated deadlines and tentative funding levels.
